The entire country bus been 
to ■ fi'nsp of shahie and pity by the 
magnitude of the national disgrace 
enacted by the -blood-thirsty rioters ip 
East St. Louis Monday, Jnly 2. 

Ha much has boon said in the daily 
press about the. affair, thai it wuuld be 
a wasti of time tu 'review the facta ia 
the horrible massacre were it not for 
the false reports made and the prob- 
able result ..a. the mind* of the' people < 
. Although the fact that NCgroon were 
. armed when the rioting was renewed 
ha* given credit to fbe claim that they 
were planning an uprising, investiga- 
tion shows that arming n a? only for 
self- protection. Eye witnesses of tha 
initial conflict .last Sunday night dis- 
prove" the first reports of the press. 
The trouble WM not atartiid "by 'the 
Nfrgroes. It dates back to the first 
;riot on May '88. Since that" time 

- Negroes. have been waylaid and beaten 
by white thug*, without provocation, 
Aaily. Lust Sunday flight a Negro was 

"liywii "by a gang fteaj the Municipal. 
Bridge and in self -defense, ha managed 
To. got his gun'and shot one of bis as- 
sailniita. 

Later ia the pvening, or some time 
after midnight, an suf:, mobile leaded 
with white men traversed a portion of 

.the Colored district, speeding at a 
rapid rate and its" occupants ■hooting 
into the homes Of the residents. These 
snots aroused the tenants. So far as 

I the ringing of a church bell, calling 
,them to. arms, so use claims to have 
hesrd it. The only claim ia made in 

- the daily prea*. The firing of' shots, 
alone, caused the men to come out into 
their yards and ou the streets to as- 
certain the trouble. 

Following this, another automobile 
came on the sceae ajid the Negroes 
i-tunodiatoly flwd upon it, thinking this 
was. another machine with lawless oc- 
cupants whose purposeiwae to" repeat 
the aeth of the ' preceding one. - They, 
however, .proved to be police officers, 
who were drawn to the .scene by the 
-sEjjts fired !?y the occupants of the 
first ear. <p v» . 

One officer was kiHed and another 
wounded. The automobile shows indi- 
cations of being bit five or six times. 
How many .were, in the crowd is uncer- 
tain, but/there waa no "military Forma. 
tion" a* stated. >'. 

Tin' Negroes deny that there was 
any sxchanga of srords and the report 
■that they had said, " We ' dSn 't need 
yotir. protection." was oedy a Kate- 
meat- that had been niade'by. someone 
. over a tneaik ago arid waa coupled 
with this report to give it color. 

A reporter for the St. Louis ArgaS 
. arrived^ Da the scene Monday , afearswoti 
i'i.1 his aceomt of the -horrible carnage' 
that- was perpetrated is this great 
manafaetari^j; center of the etata of 
Lieeahs, from that time until taldhaight. 
■■'■■■' ■;■'-!>! ibe belief of iateUigent man- 
hood Xbtot before in the history of 
the ■ ' I -and of that Pre* aad the -H»n>e 
of the Ursvr" I 



tq such depths of savagery and com- 
mitted such atrocious crimes. 

The ■ moments uf the daily press 
about the cruelty to the Negroes ad- 
ministered by the blood -thinly mob 
and the laxity of the police and militia 
ivere not exaggerated. While our re- 
porter states that there. -\vero no less 
than' one hundred Negro Jnon, women 
and children shot; tortured, and burned 
to death, he believes thefe wore mora, 
riow man? 1 , no one ma? ever knoir. 
11 ore. than two hundred homes were 
destroyed, «itl, all their conlonts. The 
scene of the destruction of' life, and 
property wad not iu the thickly popu- 
lated district, the mob w^s too coward- 
ly to invade it, but vented its fury on 
isolated spots, and helpless -victims. It 
had no choice. It waa as a iporting 
crowd, hunting, for game. A black face 

afid cniLire* Seeing from their burn- 
ing homos, pled for mercy,, but were 
shot down ntid ihcir. bodies, thrown 
buck to be . .-ousume^i by (the 'flan 
injured "men were, dispatched on 
death by dubbing, stoning and sta 
ing. Dying victims were strung 
poles nnd~ut,hors thrown in the, wi 
to drown. Anil all o"f this occurred 
before Iht' eyes uf the police and with- 
in range "f Ihe gum of the militia.'yot 
no effort was made to cheek. the fury 
of the mob. 

That awn* whites were killod and 
injured than given. in rpporen. is evi- 
dent from what »u seen Janus Tues- 
day a ft. Tire™ in and night. 

The loss of property will be great 
and Htwrditig tu 'stalenirnla mado- lo

be compelled to close until the govern 
moot will guarantee protection.

THE RACE WAR. 

We have heard and read so much about the recent race riot at 
E: St. Louis daring the past week until we feel like ha who has 
drank of the cup of bitterness and is intoxicated from its effects. 
Page after page of newspaper accounts, augmented by the echios 
of the streets have pregnated the very air with the horrors that 
he innocent people of East St. Louis had to suffer at the hands of 
the mob. . 

Just how the people the world over will see and judge this hor 
rible spectacle largely depends upon the press reports and edito^sl 
comments of the St. Louis daily papers. Of course, an Aagua re 
porter was on the scene, took his chances of being sniped by the 
snipper, or hit Ijj; the many bullets, and mingled with the crowds. 
He saw it-all. Of the press reports, the Gtob*-D*mocrat of Tue's 
day morning gave the fairest account of the acts of the police and 
the military men. 

The editorials in the St. Louis daily papers, for the moat part, 
were broad, and characterize with justice and fairness. In speak 
ing of the riot the Glob*- Democrat said: 

Th* Sham* or* Hlinoit. 
"The events in East St. Louis Monday night were a disgrace to 
that city, a disgrace to. Illinois, a disgrace to America, .a disgrace to 
humanity. We can recall no event in the history of this country so 
utterly and unreliev ably shameful. There have been mobs, many 
of them, there have been riots not a few, to stain our civilization, 
but never a one that carried to such an extent the unreasoning bru- 
taiity-.of .mobocracy, never a one that so tortured and killed and 
burned without-discriminatioR of. innocence or guilt, that spared 
neither sex nor age in its violence. ^ 

"No attempt was there' made to punish crime by striking at the 
criminal. Scores were tortured or killed against whom no charge 
of wrong was made, whose only offense was their color. Men, wo- 
men, children went down before the insatiate blood lust of this 
worst and most cruel of mobs. 

- - "And. this is the state of Abraham Lincoln! This in the great 
■tats whose sons poured out their blood on- many battlefields' that 
all men within the Union should be free. At the heart of the coun- 
try which prides itself upon its liberty and humanity, within a hun- 
dred miles of the home and tomb of the great liberator, men of the 
race he saved fram slavery are- massacred by a lawless' mob unre- 
strained by any authority. At a time when we are entering a tre- 
mendous war to make, as we say, the world- safe for democracy,- 
•ur own people have given democracy a blow that well may stag- 
ger it. For if democracy is not the right of every individual to 
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, then in hmaomn'a nam* 
what is it? How can we decently and honestly proclaim the supe- 
riority of American government and American principles when 
such a crime against liberty as that of Monday night in East St. 
Louis is permitted. 

"Yes, permitted! It was a pre vtfri table crime. There had been 
ample warning. There was-a large and complete force on hand to 
maintain order. Yet the rioters were permitted to gather and go 
on their way of destruction. Eight companies of the state militia 
were there, but apparently no serious effort was made either to 
prevent the formation of the mob or to stop itswork after it was 
formed. Reports of eyewitnesses agree as to the inaction of the 
militia. Some feeble attempts were made to protect the objects of 
the mob's fury, but there seems to have been no attempt whatever 
to maintain order. We do not know who- is responsible for this 
most disgraceful and lamentable failure of authority and power. 
But we do know that aome one is, or some ones are, responsible, 
and the State -of lllinpis cannot rest until that responsibility Is fixed. 
Punismentof rioters alone will -not wipe away the shame. ■ The 
blunder that permitted the riot must be accounted for. And, fin- 
ally the Federal Government should refuse to take into its service 
any officer o* private who is found to have been derelict in his duty 
in this crisis. The people of Illinois must insist,' and the people of 
.America will insist. that this thing be probed to the bottom, for it 
is not only stale honor but 'national honor that is involved." 
ST. LOUIS POSTtOISpATCH, 
The East St. Louis Murders— >: Law, order and governmental 
Authority were trampled under the feet of a murderous mob in East 
St, Louis Monday, to the shameful disgrace of the city and State. 

"Scores of Negro men, women and children were killed or beaten 
and hundreds of thousands of dollars* 'worth of property was de- 
stroyed without apparent effort to .cheek the violence of the mob 
on the part of the police force and companies of the national guard 
sent to the city to maintain order and enforce the 'iaws of the State 
'■"'Either from terror or sympathy -with, the mob, the police did 
nothing to check the mobs violence, but why were the forces of the 
•" national guard inactive until the mob had done its blood* work? 
Why was there not a ballet nor bayonet used' against the mob 
which freely used torch, club and bullet against Negroes, rasrard 
lets of age or sex.Qr character" 

"If the word of Adjutant-General Dickson, who arrived after 
the mob had finished its woVk, is to be taken as evidence of the in- 



tent of the national guard officers the guardsmen lacked pmper 
orders. Gen. Dickson is quoted as saying that the guard accom- 
plished the purpose for which it was sent by arresting several hun- 
dred of the mob without the use of bullets or bayonets and if the 
guardsmen had used bullets and bayonets there would have bean 
wholesale killings, - ■ " ■ . ' ' 

"Butthere was wholesale killings and wholesale horning of 
property. The mob did the killing in defiance of the law, when, if 
any killing was done, it should have been done in enforcement of 
law by the soldiers add police. 

"Why was' the mob permitted to collect and begin ita work? 
The critical time to stop the disorder was in the beginning. Hav- 
ing failed to check the gathering of the mob, why were not its 
members sbotdown when they began to kill Negroes? Better that 
a thousand lawless murders' be killed in support of law and orderly 

Jovernment thanthat one citizen be killed by a lawless mob. The 
ailure of the soldiers sent to sustain law and order and t^ use force 
for that purpose did not prevent bloodshed. It merely encouraged 
murder and arson. 

"It is hardly worth while to Question the authorities of East St. 
Louis. They have failed utterly in their duty, for well-known 
causes. They have known of the gathering storm without taking 
effective steps to check it. They have never, except in spasmodic 
temporary efforts, enforced the laws. The bloody mob work of the 
disorderly elements of the eij,y is the culminatjon'pf a long reign of 
lawlessness. Lawlessness, and discrimination in law enfprcement, 
have been the foundation of political power in East St Louis for 
years. -The lawless element has long been the masters of govern- 
mental authority and used, their license without fear of restraint. 

"The State of Illinois, however, is responsible for consequences 
of Monday's outbreak. It assumed responsibility when Illinois 
guardsmen were sent to East St. Louis to maintain law and order. 
The State should inquire inte the conduct of the officers in charge 
of thoState'a forces and hold every man guilty of failure to do his 
duty to strict accountability, This much, with the prosecution of 
themob leaders, must be done for the.future of civilization and law 
in the State. 

"Meanwhile we indulge the hope that Monday's lesson will be 
effective to prevent further mob violence. Hereafter, at -least, 
neither false- humanity nor political weakness should restrain 
soldiers sent to sustain law and order from using bullets and bayo- 
nets on murderous mobs, or individuals."

TEXT— For aa oftso sa y* ut thl

Lord'* death till b* 



Ihe Lord'* Sapper is like « double- 
flngered NiRiibwird m that It point* Id 
two directions 
backward -to the 
Cross of Christ 
and forward to 
his coming again. 
This solemn,-: 
lee should ever 
remind us of the 
blesaed fact that 
he Is coming 
again. • 

As we partake 
of the Lonl'i Sup- 




faith to took back 
to Calvary where 
Christ's blood wan 
xhed for -the re- 
mission of atn and 
his body broken for us; we are also 
by fiiith to look forward to his blessed 
appearing. It Is the latter fact that 
la brought to oar minds by the phrase 
"till he come."- By It, we are led to 
understand that as our Lord once 
came and was here npon thla earth, 
so he' Is to come a second time. 

Tils own Word gives us the promise 
of his retnrn. Sneaking to his dis- 
ciples about his coming departure be 
aald: "Anil if I go and prepure a place 
for yon. I will come again, and receive 
you .unto myself; that where I om, 
(here ye may be alno." <Jno. 14:1) By 
this he meant his own personal return 
and not the coming of the Holy Spirit. 
Whenever our lyirtl spoke about the 
coming of the Hflty Spirit, be always 
referred to It In such a way that there 
could be no confusing of that event 
with bla own coming. And we know 
that long after the advent of the Holy 
Spirit, John the evangelist on the Is- 
land of Patmoa heard again from our 
Lord the promise of his return. The 
word of the Lord to him was "Surely. 
I come quickly," and the heart' of the 
apostle responded "Amen. Even so 
come Lord Jesus." (Rev. 22:20). 

Waiting for Jesus. »•-» 

In the Church at Thessalonlra •we 
read of Christian* who "turned to God 
from ldoli to serve the llulng and true 
God; and to watt for hla son from 
heaven." {I Thess. 1 :frl0.> Evidently 
from this, aa well as from other Scrip- 
tuna, It -was Dot the Holy Spirit for 
whom they waited, for be had come; 
or for anyone ette. It waa for the 
Lord Jesus Christ himself, and' they 
waited for him to come from heaven. 
With thla agrees the promise of the 
two men In white spoken to the dis- 
ciples of our Lord nt the time of his 
ascension: "Ye men of Galilee, why 
stand ye'gaslng up Into heaven! This 
sane Jesus, which Is taken np from 
*t you Into heaven, shall so. come In like 
manner a* ye have teen htm go Into 
heaven." {Acta 1 ill.) It Is tllen from 
' heaven. Into which cur Lord ascended 
that be la. to come, and It Is be him- 
aetf for whom' we are to look, and not

for 
Neither 'did our Lord, mean the 

death of the believer, when be spoke 

of hi* coming again. At death, the 

believer departs to be with the Lord. 

It was'Paiil. who having had word con- 
cerning hla decease, said: "The time 
' of my departure la at hand." At the 

coming of Christ, the Lord himself re- 

turns to the earth and the heilevera 

shall be caught up to meet the Lord 

In the air. Then, after an Interval of 

time tbey shall come with the Lord 

when he comes In all the glory of the 

father and his holy, angels. There are 

tnustwo parts to the second coming 

Of Christ ; his coming for the boilsv- 

•■rs.-ainl hla coming with the believers. 

First Thessalonlans refers to the first 

part, while (be-Rprrmd"Theswilnnlans 

tells of the second part of his coming. 

- What tha Coming ot Jeaua Mean's. < 

One haa only to reaii the word or 

our Lord to Peter after hla resurrec- 
tion to know that by the coming of 
■ Christ .if Dot meant the death of the 

believer. In response to Peter's ques- 
tion concerning John, "What shall this 

man do?" the risen Lord said. "If I 

will that he tarry till I come, what la 

that to thee?" "Then." adds the evan- 
gelist, "went this saying abroad among 

the. brethren that that disciple should 

not die: TetVesus said not unto hi m. 
•He shall- not die;' hut. If I will 
' that be tarry till I come, what Is that 
to theer*" (Jno. 31:21-23.) Here yon 
M Is a clear distinction made between 
■death and the coming of Christ 

In that once famous, but now almost 
forgotten book "The Life of Jeaua,' 1 
the author. David Fried rich Strauss, 
refers to the frequency .with which 
our. Lord speaks of his aecood coming, 
lie. uses, this, as an argument «galnat-f "those who wander from 



tb* credibility of the Gospel narrative 
because be saja a .dead man cannot 
come back to earth. This' argument a 
. little child ,» ho knows aiiyihlng of the 
truth can easily controvert, for It la. 
not 'Whether a dead man can ■come 
. . . back to earth, but whether tike Boa 
of God, who rose from the dead, can 
fulfill Ma oft- repeated promise': "I am 

*^ Yes- be is coming back' again and

fact. Already there are fnregleami ol

Abas, reigned .aexteen. years from 
about. 739 to T23 B..C. over- the king- 
dom of Judnh. Its capital being In Jeru- 
salem. The kingdom was nenring Its 
end, and waa destroyed within a few 
years after' the death of -Aha*. 
character presents many Interesting 
questions for discussion'; the character 
of his reign, 'the wealth and prosperity 
of hla father and grandfather, the de- 
velopment of hla .character from the 
home wherein he originated, why a no- 
tion can be successful and hot be right- 
eous or virtuous, that Is, outwardly 
successful, and the application of those 
questions to our.' present-day political 
sod commercial lives. 

I. Ahsi, the Ruler, (re. 1-5). The 
character of Ahai la not to be admired. 
le played a prominent nnd evil part 
In the history of the Kingdom of Judah. 
We Hud bis name recorded among the 
Syrian Inscriptions of the year 732 It. 
Hebrew historian baring 
dropped the prefix "Jehu" from his 
name. The full nnme Indicate* that 
be had "grasped Jehovah," yet he was 
nt rue to Ids name. The historian says 
be did not that which was right In the 
sight of the Lord." This puts It mildly, 
but Indeed few of the kings of Judah 
did otherwise, and he patterned his 
conduct not utter the good model of his 
father, but the thoroughly bad conduct 
of the kings Of the northern aatlun. 
Israel. He was but twenty years of 
ge when. he took the throne, but had 
Iready entered upon a course of action 
opposed to that of hla father. 

Ahai Ruined. The choice lay 
before him of following In the .steps oV 
ills grandfather Uzzluh apd his father 
Jothiim ill Chron. 1:10). He cbOse to 
■:i'fy God. openly disobeyed him and 
disloyal to his God' and bis noun 
walking In the way* of the kings 
of Israel, (v. .2), burnt hla children in 
the Sre, after the abominations of the 
heathen, (v. 3), made molten Images 
of Baal, <v. 2), and spread that wor- 
ship into- the high places on the hills 
and under every" green tree '(v. 4). 
made sacrilegious uae-of the temple's 
treasury, snd was dishonest as well as 
tihofahe. He trusted Baalim more than 
be trusted QodV "... 

III. Abas Rebutted. God did hot al- 
low him to purane his course of action 
without protest. When the children of 
good men go wrong, there Is no meas- 
uring the extent of depravlty'to which 
they will sink." Nevertheless, God -wp.s 
opposed and tried to save the young 
man and -the. nation. God used the 
king of Syria as one agency, for rebuk- 
ing tola mad young man. He carried 
away great multitudes captive, one 
hundred and twenty thousand la one 
day (t. 6). and Tfwo' hundred thou- 
sand women, sons and daughters" 
(r. s> at another date. Aha* himself 
waa filled with terror at thy great- ca- 
lamity that overtook him. (tan. 7:2.}. 
While he received temporary help (It 
Kings 18: 9. 10). he received ultimately 
ruin from the king of Assyria, for he 
became a vassal and 'was summoned 
to Damascus to pay .homage to that 
king, as appears from the account II 
Kings 1(1:7-0. and Also from the Assy- 
rian Inscription, above referred to. 
Other enemies also attacked him— 
Eaomltes from the southeast carried 
away captives, and the Philistines 
from. the- southwest invaded Is* csttas) 
of the tow plains, south of Julian, and 
took possession nf ihem (vv. 1T-19) and 
the army of the Assyrian, which Ahai 
led to rob and profane tne temple and 
Its treasures. In order to buy them olT 
(v. 22-24J, completed the ruin of ills 
nation. Ahnk^was forced to pay n 
heavy tHbute to the Assyrian v.klng 
(V.-21). and got no help for tila'ouV 
liiy. He .put his trust Ir. an arm "of 
flesh Instead of In the mighty arm of 
God, which brought upon him the 
curse, that always, comes to those who 
trust. In man (Jer. 17:5, 6). There is 
a blessing which alwaya awalta "those 
who trust ih Jehovah (Jer., .17:7, 81. 
The wise man tdras'To fiod not fn the 
time of his dlstresa'bat at all tlmra. 
nstead of -sacrificing to 'the God who 
saved hla father 'and who would' save 
him. Aha* sacrificed to the god "which' 
smote him." Ills defiance knew 
bounds (v. 24),. He seemed to have 
dabbled In every known- form of false 
worship, thereby "provoking ti 
the" Lord God. of hla fathers" (II KInjrs

Perions Have "Cold Fert" 
In a Literal Sense When 
Afraid^Scientisti Rnd 

When we accuse a bun of being 
afraid to do somethlug, we frequently 
«ty be hits "cold feet," bat few resllM 
the actual physiological connection 
which exists he t n-een fear and the tem- 
perature of the feet. 
, There is. however, a Terr definite 
ami good reason why the expression 
"cold feet" came to be connected witfc 
the" emotion of fear. Worry and fear 
are Tery closely allied In their general 
meaning and 'their effect on human 
beings. Fenriia u exaggerated form 
of worrying. 

Of all the physical Ilia which- we 
needlessly and unconsciously brlnl 
npon ourselyea the moat are doubtless 
caused by worry. Hurrying through 
I oar dally tasks and ' pleasures at 
[ breathless speed Is bad enough, but 
to worry about future Ills Is far worse. 

It Is well enough to look Into the 
future and provide to our best ability 
aialnat mlsfortuneaf bat when this 
foresight amounts to seeing only ths 
phantoms In our path. It la rmft|ii]g 
abort ofalow solrdde. 

Worry and fear hay* a very detri- 
mental action upon certain glands of 
Internal secretion which control our 
heal tli. and. poise. Physichvna are fast 
accumulating Important data to meas- 
ure and Induce the healthy action of 
these glands, among which the thyroid 
Is one of the most Important. Bat It 
seems Impossible to hope. for any 
remedy that will repair all the harm 
worry can do these glands. 

The heart action becomes Irrejuiar 
and Intermittent when you worry; all 
the symptoms of heart disease appear] 
the respiration Is repressed; the entire, 
digestive tract becomes paralysed for ■ 
time, and the circulation of blood to the 
extremities diminishes. The hands and 
feet become actually cold to the touch. 

To tell a man that- he has "cold feet' 
amounts to telling him that he lacks 
courage. to take a certain step which 
he thinks he would like' or ought to 
take. In, consideration of the subject 
he nndergoes ■ nervous strain known 
as worry and this actually causes a 
physical coldness of the extremities.

Dreaming With a Purpose 
.Is the Most Worth- While 
l)t Youthful Occupations; 

"Ob. he's only a dreamer." This 
sentence Is often spoken In derision of 
some young man or woman whose 
visions appear Impossible to those who 
consider themselves 'more, practical. 
Vet the progress of the world la only 
the working out of the visions of. 
dreamers. Joseph wss called a dream-* 
er.- His dreams were prophetic of the 
service he was to render, not only to 
his family, but to the civlllxstlon of his 
dsy. .But his brothers misunderstood 
his dreams, perhsps understood *• lit- 
tle ss did he. himself at the time, and 
bee's use they could not understand 
they hated him for having dreams sod 
placed him lit the way of -realisation by 
sttetrrptlng to tret rid or him. says the 
ChristlBn Herald 

' Dreaming la the 'most worth-while 
of youthfql -occupations. If It Is dresm- 
Ing with a purpose. Idle dreams that 
carry no 'Inspiration to action . are 
worse than useless. But drtvma that 
Include a purpose shape the destinies 
of men and women.. The young t:sr 
field, treading the tow-path, dreamed 
of education and of leadership, and 
Attained both. In every school and col< 
legs of the country young 1 men and 
women are held to their tasks by. the 
glOTiouH vision of what they intend to 
be and, to do, -and. every year those. 
who have remained true to their vision* 
are making good in the pulpit and 
press, tn'business and tjo the far-Hung
